My name is Catherine Adams and I grew up in Montgomery, AL with my older sister and younger brother. I am currently a senior at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL. My major at UA is Marketing with a minor in Computing Technology Applications. To relax, I enjoy watching Netflix and doing yoga. My favorite TV shows are New Girl, Gilmore Girls, and Nashville. Some of my other hobbies include cooking and organizing.
Event Planning is my main professional interest. This is where my organization skills really come in handy. Since planning events mostly requires making decisions and scheduling, much organization is needed to keep things on track. I learned the basics of event planning in the classroom, but I put my skills to the test when I was out in the field.
This past summer I got an internship with Weddings and Events by Jenna Laine in Fairhope, AL. I started in May, at the height of wedding season, and was immediately put out in the field getting on-the-job training. In preparation for the weddings, I helped Jenna by setting out flowers, staging decor, and setting up rentals and linens. Once the wedding began, my responsibilities included keeping the timeline of the wedding running smoothly and tending to any problems that arose throughout the day. This training in the field taught me more about the business than I ever could have learned in the classroom. I look forward to applying what I learned in future events to come.
